Declaring Physics as your Major:

  1. Use Axess to submit your request to declare.
  2. Contact Elva, who will assign one of the Physics faculty to be your advisor.
  3. Take your unofficial transcript to your advisor, along with a copy of the B.S. Minimum Requirement Form, to plan your physics career. If you have any missing or non-standard courses, especially for the intro (40 or 60) series, this is also the time to arrange for transfer credit, make-ups and/or substitutions, by using the Departmental Petition Form for any of these non-standard situations.  Please have your advisor sign the B.S. Minimum Requirement Form and return it to Elva. At this point your advisor should also sign off on any necessary Petition Forms for substitutions to the required courses.
  4. Have your picture taken at the Physics Undergraduate Office, Varian Building, 107, Elva Carbajal
